Hey b--not sure if you were picking 72 as the peak of his voice, or 78, but for me, 70 on the studio albums was really NICE. He could still pull it off in the studio through the early to mid 70s, as in Mars, etc., but live it was really hit or miss by late 70s when I was seeing him.

Yeah, I talked myself into a circle there. 72 was my answer but that 71 show makes him sound really good. Couldn't argue with your 70 pick.

Virtually any "Bird Song" from 1972 shows Jerry's voice IMO in its best ever apex.

He never really carried a tune quite as well as he did that year. '76 was pretty good, but he had range AND power in '72...mostly range in '76, but quieter.
